November 7: Mostly Dry Weather, Daily Links

WEATHER

We started off with seasonably cool (even chilly!) temperatures this morning:
morning-lows
But those temperatures are warming up quickly, with lots of sunshine overhead and just some fair-weather clouds.  Highs will reach the mid 70s this afternoon, making today the warmest day we’ll see for a while:
monday-highs
We’ll actually be pretty close to today’s record high of 79°, but I think that record will remain safe for another year.

Increasing clouds tonight and tomorrow, with a chance of showers late in the day Tuesday and overnight, but once again you shouldn’t expect much rainfall.  The RPM model’s radar simulation keeps the rain out of the Midstate until well after sunset, and just isn’t impressive overall…your chance of seeing anything more than a few sprinkles is just 30%, and even that is probably optimistic:
rpm-10p-tue rpm-2a-wed rpm-6a-wed
Because of the thickening cloud cover, lows tonight won’t be as cool:
tuesday-lows
We’ll warm up tomorrow, but not as much — highs will top out near 70° Tuesday:
tuesday-highs
That means no weather problems for Election Day…get out and vote!

It will feel more like November the rest of the week, with highs in the 60s and lows mostly in the 40s:

It’s still looking possible that parts of the Midstate will see the first frost of autumn Saturday night into early Sunday morning!

Other than our meager rain chance late tomorrow and tomorrow night, the extended forecast is still looking very dry.  We’re over five inches below average for year-to-date rainfall…and that number will be over six inches by the time the next decent chance of rain arrives sometime next week.
